“We’re all constantly learning from one another, and the students keep teaching me how to teach them.”

We have the most diverse classrooms, and students bring all of that experience to bear on the texts and issues we discuss in class. They're funny, curious about the world and each other, and deeply thoughtful. I'm always learning from students about the texts we read together, and they always push me to be a better teacher. My colleagues are brilliant and collaborative. Many have deep specialities in one area or another, but we're also all generalists eager to learn new things. I'm a dedicated student of Haitian history and literature and maintain two sites on the subject: Mapping Haitian History ( and Mapping the Haitian Revolution ( The latter was funded by the Tang Institute and grew out of a course I co-teach with my History colleague, Dr. Christopher Jones.
